It's time to order your pies for Thanksgiving! We're taking orders until this Friday, November 19th. (No worries though; if you miss the deadline, we'll still have plenty of pies in the store. You just may not get exactly what you want.) Look below for our selections.
We've always been proponents of planning ahead when it comes to Thanksgiving. What can you be doing right now to make next Thursday go by swimmingly? Below is a list.
• Order your Bowman & Landes Turkey from the Butcher Shop (614.846.3220).
• Order your pies from the Bakery. Choose from a selection of Judy's Pies, Just Pies and Steven's Bakery & Orchard Pies. (614.846.3220).
• Pull out and polish your silver and serving utensils.
• Clean and polish your Thanksgiving dining area with Ohio's own Milsek Furniture Polish (pictured above in Cinnamon Raspberry and Mandarin Orange scents.)
• Purchase or create a brine for your turkey. (We're quite partial to the brine we make.)
• Order your table centerpiece from our Floral Shoppe. (614.846.3220).
We're posting holiday recipes several times a week. Click through to learn how to make Ben's Deviled Eggs (with Ohio's own Ben's Sweet & Hot Mustard), Spinach with Pine Nuts and Raisins and Norman's Simple Stuffing. (And check back often for more updates!)
You may have noticed that we've been somewhat divided here at The Hills Market recently. Half of our Professional Foodies and Customer Service specialists have been identifying with a certain "Team Bowman," and the other half with "Team Landes." These teams, in honor of Bowman & Landes Free-Range Turkeys, put on our first-ever Hills Market Turkey Bowl. Look below to see a few images of the football game - and to find out which team turned out victorious.
When you buy Ohio products from The Hills Market this holiday season, you'll be giving twice. From now through December 31st, we're giving 10% of the sale of more than 125 Ohio products to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Whether you create an Ohio Themed Gift Basket, use these items as hostess gifts or enjoy them for yourself, you'll be helping to feed the hungry of Central Ohio while supporting small Ohio food innovators and Columbus' premiere locally owned market.

From October 16, 2010 until November 20, 2010, The Hills Market Seafood Department would like to offer our customers increased savings on all the fresh seafood that you purchase. To do so, we are introducing our Seafood Club Card.
This card will offer you savings of $1.00, $2.00 or $3.00 per pound, depending on how many punches you have received on your card. Each time you make a seafood purchase, your card will be punched at the seafood counter and the cost of your purchase per pound will be reduced by the amount indicated on your card. (Some restrictions apply.)
